in thread Running gpg thru IPC, fileno problem

I explored CPAN's GPG/PGP modules a while back. Most of them either don't compile or fail their tests on Fedora Core 3. The GPG interfaces on CPAN seem to have been left to rot, which means doing your own IPC to the executable is probably the safest choice at the moment. (Or put in the effort to clean one of them up, if you have the time and interest.)

    Seeing how most everything fails on fedora core :)(that locale issue) and there is a few passes, I wouldn't discount them without good examination (i have successfully used at least 2 of those).

    update: also, a lot of those FAILS are a case of Can't exec "gpg": No such file or directory , which means the test suite isn't the best (assumes you have gpg installed), but doesn't indicate an actual failure.

    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

      I think that locale issue only affected Perl 5.8.0. It's not a problem on FC3.
